Setting the Foundation for Life

Enroll your 4-year-old in our nature-based preschool program at West Michigan Academy of Environmental Science! Every classroom is nature-based while focusing on developing the foundation of early childhood academic skills. The goal is to provide students with the foundational education for success in an environmental school. True to our mission, we will encourage discovery, learn outside and explore using all of our senses. Students need to be 4 years old by September 1, 2020.

The preschool is in our brand-new early childhood center that is located just west of our elementary building on our campus. It will be tuition-based and will accept the State of Michigan child care reimbursement.

A $100 deposit, birth certificate, and child information card needs to be brought into the office to finalize your application.
